Overview

About the property

Chalet, 4 Bedrooms + Office, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 8) +1-2 young child

Heritage House is a superb, wonderfully bright, luxurious and comfortable executive lakefront Mountain Chalet, perfectly located at Mont-Tremblant, Quebec.

This executive residence was designed to accommodate skiers, golfers and summer lovers in comfort, luxury and large private spaces. It is located in the peaceful forest of the 'Villa des Bois' development at Lac Dufour / Lac Forget, only a short drive from the quaint shops and restaurants of St-Jovite (5 minutes), several golf courses, and the combined skiing capital of Mont-Tremblant and Mont Blanc. Close to the action ... yet in a world of its own.

The Chalet is rented directly by its owners, thus assuring quality and reasonable prices.

It is nestled high in the secluded hills of 'Villa des Bois', on 1.6 acres of private forest. The home is 2,500 square feet of modern, open spaces, cathedral ceilings, and 'walls of glass' where you may bask in sunshine (or in moonlight), all year round, while taking in the stunning view and the mature trees all around.

It has 4 very large bedrooms, 3 full washrooms (1 ensuite), 6 outside decks and a huge screened-in porch. It is fully equipped to receive 8 adults very comfortably.

The main entrance is warm and inviting. It leads to the stunning living room with its huge cascading windows, warm Napoleon fireplace, antique furniture, original art, cozy leather couches, library and wing back chair. The Great room has to be experienced first hand!

The dining room is large and the table expands to easily accommodate an entire group of guests. It gives onto a large deck and the screened porch, where you may BBQ to your heart's content all year round, amidst the nature! The kitchen is bright and fully equipped, Lagustina pots, pans and all the appliances you would expect. We provide the kitchen staples so that you can enjoy your holidays, instead of having to run around town: spices, sugar, flour, Soya sauce, salt, pepper, ketchup, mustard, etc,... not to mention the kitchen sink!

There are 2 large bedrooms on the main floor, one with a queen bed, the other with a king, plus 2 full bathrooms (bath & shower - one ensuite). All bedrooms have down duvets and pillows; all linens are provided.

Up to the cozy loft, and admire the magnificent view of the lake from the 2 twin beds.

The oversized family room is on the lower level, with its 9 foot ceiling, relaxing furniture, digital cable reception with large screen TV, DVR, BR player, computer, printer, fax and yet another wood burning fireplace. The patio door walk-out leads to a colorful wild flower garden, more decks and the romantic pathway to the lake, through the woods. The fourth bedroom, also on the lower level, occupies an entire wing of the house and is practically an apartment on its own, along with the third full washroom and adjacent laundry facilities. This "bedroom wing" also has a crib and a separate (third) single bed, to accommodate unrelated guest.

Can't leave the office behind? Relax! We have Wi-Fi high speed internet throughout the property and a full office setup on the lower level. In addition, our VOIP telephones allow you to call home, or anywhere in North America, for free!

THE BEACH: (AKA as 'The rock')

Enjoy, your own private bedrock beach, flowing into the pristine waters of Lac Forget, or read your favorite book a few steps back, under the shade of a 160 year old jack pine. The key words here are: 'PRIVACY' and 'SOLITUDE'. From the beach head which is a point advancing into the lake, everything around is natural forest: the neighbours are nowhere to be seen. We also have a large floating raft, 20 feet into the lake, for swimming. Motor boats are not permitted on the lake. It just doesn't get better than this...

Villa des Bois is a small, controlled development in an exquisite, natural, mountain setting. We are approximately an hour and a half drive north of Montreal (Quebec), from either Pierre E.Trudeau International Airport, or from Mirabel Airport, 30 minutes from La Makaza local airport.

Shopping is pure fun in the village of St-Jovite or in the original village of Mont Tremblant. Music festivals and sports events are frequenlty held at the mountain or the surrounding Mont-Tremblant area. Among them the 24 hour ski marathon, the 'Blues Fest' in July, the Canada Day festivities, the car races and world kart chapionship at Le Circuit and the Ironman event in August, have all become world class attractions.

Of course, winter time include world class downhill skiing and snowboarding at the local ski resorts (Tremblant, Mont Blanc) located in the immediate area, all within a twelve minute drive from the chalet.

A few steps from our door and you can be snowshoeing in the woods or cross-country skiing around the lakes and trails.

In the summertime our area transforms into a recreational paradise for golfers (8 golf courses within 20 minutes drive! ), horseback riding, bicycling, mountain climbing, hiking, fishing, whitewater rafting, and of course, swimming or,... just sitting around listening to the birds and enjoying the clean alpine environment and serenity.

You may especially not want to miss our Canadian maples turn into a folly of colors in the fall, or taste its sweet syrup at the sugar shacks in spring.

Keywords: Lakefront mountain home, 5 star, affordable, 4 bedrooms with all the amenities you could wish for!

About Jacques Berthiaume

This chalet is owned by Jacques Berthiaume and is operated directly by him and his wife, Beth Williams. Jacques and Beth were born and raised in Ottawa, Ontario, and currently live in Aylmer, Quebec, across the river from Ottawa. They have two great daughters. Jacques is an attorney with his own law firm in Gatineau, Quebec, and has been a member of the Bar of the province of Quebec since 1985. His hobbies and interests include traveling, computing and attending racing events. Jacques is bilingual (French and English). Beth worked in the 'high tech' environment, as office manager for a large consulting firm in Ottawa. Her passions include gardening, cooking and traveling. It was our travel experience around the world which prompted us to offer to travelers, the very ingredients that create satisfying and memorable holidays: An immaculate waterfront property with only 5 star reviews, fully equipped, located in a priceless, quiet and natural environment, just minutes from the attractions and all the action. This, is our promise to you.

Jacques Berthiaume purchased this chalet in 2000

Why Jacques Berthiaume chose Villa des Bois

Beth had a keen sense for hot and interesting travel destinations. She identified Mont-Tremblant and the Villa des Bois area, as such, in the late 90's. 'Heritage House' (north) as we call it, was custom built by us, as a Y2K project, on the prime lakefront lot of the Villa des Bois project, in Mont-Tremblant. It is one of two rental properties we own in Mont-Tremblant, and built specifically to accommodate up to 8 travelers, with total care and comfort. As for Mont-Tremblant itself, it has so much to offer, the most difficult part is... having to leave.

What makes this chalet unique

Why chose our property? 1) Personal involvement of the owners: Renting our chalet is a personal activity that we enjoy very much. We personally look after every aspect of the chalet and the rentals, to ensure that your holidays will be a resounding success. After all, isn't that the point of taking holidays? We thrive on the personal contact with our guests, and our objective is simple: To make happy stories and perfect, memorable holidays for our guests! 2) Location - Setting - Architecture: This, you will have to experience directly; In the meantime, you must take our word for it (or those of our guests). All we can say, is that in our 16 years of rental, we have never received anything less than top rate reviews from our guests, on every aspect of their experience. .We would not be renting, if it was any other way. 3) Price: Oddly, we have been told (by some very honest guests!) that our prices are well below comparable properties. Well, we thinks that's fine. While we feel we are receiving a fair return on our investment, we also feel that, unfortunately, many others are over-exploiting the area travelers. Don't let our prices mislead you!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Staying at the Heritage House proved to be a most enjoyable and relaxing experience. The house is exceptional and extremely well equipped. We spent a lovely Christmas week enjoying it and all that the region offers and would not hesitate to come back or recommend this place.



Thank you Jacques & Beth. Dec 2006 (Great Britain)

AMAZING CHALET !!!!

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful! Quiet! Awe Inspiring ! We were 3 couples (siblings) and this is our 5th getaway together. The Chalet is stunning! Everything was exactly as described in the VRBO advertisement. This is the perfect place for any one wanting to stay in the Mont Tremblant area for a lot less than a hotel would cost. We've stayed in a lot of Chalet but the thoughtfulness and notes the owners leave for guests are wonderful. Right down to an Emergency Kit in case the power goes out (which we thankfully didn't have to use LOL). I highly recommend this Chalet for your next stay in the Mont Tremblant area!

Excellent Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for family day long weekend and couldn't have been happier. The Heritage House had everything we needed with a very well stocked kitchen and a BBQ. The views are gorgeous, there is ample seating around the fire, the dining table and has very well spaced out, large bedrooms. Heritage House is located in a very convenient location with only a 20 minute drive from the Tremblant Village as well as snowshoeing and cross-country skiing.

The owners are very accommodating and respond to requests quickly. We had absolutely no complaints. I would recommend this place to anyone and would definitely be back.

New Years in Mt. Tremblant

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I and our adult children (7 in total) enjoyed a fabulous 5 nights at Heritage House between Christmas and over New Years Eve. It was our first time renting through VRBO and although we had some misgivings about staying in someone's home, we immediately felt very much at home. We had all of the amenities that we needed for a wonderful ski trip and felt like we were in a friend's home. We would love to return!!

Autumn Foliage

  • 5 of 5

Friends from California joined us at the chalet in the hope of seeing Fall colours for the first time. We were not disappointed. We also were definitely not disappointed with our accommodations. The house was spacious, well appointed, clean and in a beautiful and practical location. We made all our own meals and found everything we needed to go along with our consumables. It was too warm to start up the fire place but that would have been perfect. One thing I could not find was a magnifying mirror. Putting on make-up without seeing what I was doing proved to be a bit difficult. Thanks Jacques for helping me make this happen

Ladies' Weekend

  • 5 of 5

Enjoyed a great weekend away with friends for skiing and snowshoeing. Heritage House was perfect - a well-equipped and rustic chalet with plenty of space and beautiful views. And all the beds were comfortable. Jacques was a helpful and informative owner. We didn't even bother going out for meals as it was easy and pleasant to stay in and cook. We're hoping to stay at Heritage House again next year.
